Terra Bistro Appy Hour

Last week some friends and I went to Terra Bistro for their “Appy Hour” . You may think I’ve left out the “H” but that is not the case. Appy Hour is like a traditional happy hour but with better food. It is daily from 5 – 6pm in the bar area of the restaurant. Terra Bistro is located in Vail Village, just a short distance from the Antlers at Vail condos. They have a large, creative menu of appetizers and drinks. Appetizers priced from $5, mixed drinks from $4, and specialty cocktails from $6. It was the perfect place to go before we headed over to the Ford Amphitheater to see the  Vail International Dance Festival. We didn’t sample everything on the menu but here are a few of the apps we tried. (We polished off the truffle pizza and mussels before we could take a picture.)
